WISCONSIN - Fewer than five weeks remain before sign-ups begin for the new online health insurance marketplaces in Wisconsin.
But Governor Scott Walker's administration has yet to release details on what plans and rates people can choose from.
The online sign-ups will start October 1.
The Affordable Care Act requires the healthcare exchanges to take effect in January.
States like Ohio and Florida have already made rate information publically available.
On Monday, Governor Walker said more details would be released within a week.
"Politically, I still have questions about Obamacare. In the end, it's the law, and we're going to make sure that people have as much access to information as they need," he said.
Governor Walker has consistently opposed the Affordable Care Act and its implementation.
But one of Wisconsin's U.S. Senators continues to strongly support the legislation.
"I think it's really high time that people of all political stripes put politics aside and instead focus on the progress we need to make together to make this work," said Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin.
The state-by-state marketplaces are designed to transform the way individuals and small businesses buy private health insurance.
RHINELANDER - Cracked concrete, twisted rebar, and overgrown trees and bushes don't paint the most ideal picture for a park. But a Rhinelander alderman sees the perfect chance for a peaceful place to enjoy nature.
Alderman Alex Young hopes to turn an old snow dumping dock site into a "pocket park." The site sits where Norway Street runs into the Wisconsin River behind Ripco Credit Union and the DNR Service Center building.
WAUSAU - A contractor fell from a ladder and died at the construction site of the new Hilton Garden Inn in Wausau last week. Now, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the death.

RHINELANDER - People lived through detours, dust, and demolition throughout most of 2016 in downtown Rhinelander. Residents won't see that kind of work in 2017, but the city is planning more closures and road work to finish up the Streetscape Project.
Crews will start with the Davenport Street Bridge shutting down for a month in starting April 17. Public Works Director Tim Kingman says some sections of concrete, sidewalk, and asphalt pavement shifted, settled and cracked over the winter.
TOMAHAWK - Tomahawk High School sporting events got an attendance boost this winter. At the same time, local charities benefited from the community's generosity.
The school's Varsity Club sponsored six nights of special events, one for each winter sport. The Varsity Club gave out T-shirts printed with team rosters. Meanwhile, fans brought donations for local charities.
"Each kid would walk in and they'd put on their T-shirt," said Varsity Club member Jackie Elliott. "When we got our student section going, they were all together, and you just had this block of white. It was awesome."
